The devastated wife of former Michigan Christian radio host John Balyo, who confessed to raping a 12-year-old boy Monday after just seven weeks of marriage, may soon get counseling if a Youcaring fundraising campaign seeking to raise $50,000 is successful.
Balyo, who was arrested while at the Big Ticket music festival last Friday, confessed to raping the 12-year-old boy, according to a Calhoun County prosecutor at his arraignment in court Monday where he was denied bail and could now spend the rest of his life in prison.
Well-known Christian motivational speaker Justin Lookadoo who sparked controversy last year with his message that "dateable girls know how to shut up," was arrested in Evansville, Indiana, this week for public intoxication.
According to a WFIE report, Lookadoo, 44, was arrested after authorities found him in his car on the side of I-164. They said he told them he pulled over to take a nap but their investigation of his car revealed something different.
Deputies reportedly found vomit inside Lookadoo's car and said he reeked of alcohol. He also failed a sobriety test recording a BAC of .07. more >>
Tomorrow, state officials in California will review a petition to gain a vote in November that would reduce prison sentences for non-violent felonies. Backers claim that there are more than 800,000 signatures already, which exceeds the 504,000 signatures needed. If passed, the law would reduce the long sentences for minor drug possessions, shoplifting, check forgeries, and other such non-violent felonies to misdemeanors.

Only a half year away from the first day marijuana became legal to grow, possess, consume and sell in Colorado, groups such as Focus on the Family say the new law has facilitated grave consequences, including deaths, child endangerment, and interstate trafficking.
"In just a few months since legalization, we've seen several deaths directly linked to legal marijuana use, children bringing pot-infused snacks to school and law enforcement in neighboring states reporting an increase in the seizure of marijuana traced back to Colorado," Focus on the Family's senior director of public policy, Carrie Gordon Earll, told The Christian Post this week.
Often touted by advocates as harmless, it appears there's a growing amount of evidence against marijuana usage and legalization that proves otherwise. As national policy and politics reporter Eric Schulzke wrote in his article, Dumb and dumber? Teen marijuana use linked to lower IQ in later life, researchers are discovering an increased urgency to do research on the drug's effects, including on the developing brains of teens, as more states are quickly considering marijuana legalization. more >>
A Minnesota man who logged into his Facebook account on a computer inside a home he allegedly burglarized is now in police custody because he forgot to log out before leaving the crime scene.
"World's dumbest criminal," said homeowner James Wood after finding the damning evidence left behind by Nicholas Wig, 26, on his computer in a CBS report. "I don't know."
According to Wood, he returned to his South St. Paul home last Thursday to find it ransacked and his cash, credit cards and watch were all missing. more >>
Former Michigan Christian radio host John Balyo, who was arrested while at the Big Ticket music festival last Friday, confessed to raping a 12-year-old boy, according to a Calhoun County prosecutor at his arraignment in court Monday where he was denied bail and could now spend the rest of his life in prison.
Balyo, 35, of Caledonia, Michigan, allegedly paid 41-year-old Ronald Lee Moser of Battle Creek to arrange sexual encounters with underage boys, according to an earlier CP report. Moser operated a website that offered customers sex with underage boys for a fee. Authorities said they discovered Moser with a 12-year-old boy and seized child pornography during a raid of his home earlier this month.
